How to Make Russian Tea Cakes

Step-by-Step

  2. Cool the dough in the refrigerator for about ½ hour.
  3. Take the dough out of the refrigerator and shape into 1- inch balls. Place them on baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
  4. Bake 13-15 minutes until set but not brown. Immediately remove from baking pans and put onto cooling racks.
